TUESDAY, JULY 14, BLYTHEVftLE (AKK.V COURIER NEWS PAGE NINE 'oreign Aid: So/ons \Find It Problem of \Headache Proportions • By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (Hi — Billions in foreign aid. Year after year. Congress squirms and asks: How long must we keep shoveling It out? ,So Congress this year votes to end it in the next couple of years. it end then? Maybe. Next fcyear is another year with other •problems. And the next year. And Ithe next. Sen. McClellan, Arkansas •Democrat, gave the familiar .rea- Ison why Congress is bleak on fu- |ture aid: _ "Our taxes are the highest we've •paid, our expenditures are the • highest we've vr had in pao- Jtim, and w'v just rolld up th Igratest peacetime deficit we've •ever had." But Mutual security Director •Harold E. Stassen facing a Sen- late committee to justify the $5.•200,000,000 the Eisenhower admin- listration asked for 60 countries this Byear, imparted gloomy news: • This country may have to con- Itinue foreign aid of some sort for 110 years because Russia may be la threat that long, he said. And • Secretary of State Dulles, coming Ibehind him, backed him up. J Dulles added a gloomy note of Ihis own; some countries can't get lalong without help; if they don't • get the help, the Communists may I get them. Dules said that for the L'tSenefits this country gets the price jit pays Is not bad. I But when Congress finally drops I foreign aid, if it does in the next I couple of years, it will have to I face some unpleasant facts by- I passed this year. The facts involve I trade and aid. This country's overseas friends a have been saying; "Trade, not I aid." They want more trade with the United States so they'd get more clolars, earned by selling things to the United States which could be used for buying more here. Their big comp'iaint :Too high American tariffs keep their goods out. For years this country has had an arrangement—called the reciprocal trade program—by which the President could lower some tariffs for other countries provided they lowered their against American goods. This year President Eisenhower asked Congress to continue the reciprocal trade program another year. This would permit those agreements already worked out, lowering some tariffs, to continue. This ran into some fierce opposition. So anxious was he to get the program continued that Eisenhower promised Congress, if it was, he would not lower any tariffs this year. The .reason £or the congressional mood against the program: :Tarif protect American, industries from foreign competition and industries which want stich protection put pressure on their congressmen. i3ut, in me end, both houses approved keeping the program at least one more year. This postpones a question which Congress must face in the future: If it cuts out foreign aid but. keeps up high barriers against Allied trading here, wat will those Highway Group To Tour State LITTLE ROCK W)—Members of the State Highway Commission will make a 2-day tour of Highway Department installations throughout the state before its next meeting July 29. Highway Director Herbert Eldridge said the tour would help acquaint the Commission with activities of the Department. The tour will take in three maintenance districts. Eldridge said the other seven will be visited later. Bother countries so since raost of I them must do some trading? I One thing they might do, and probably would do, is n lot more trading with Russia, particularly If Russia, trying to split the Allies gets cozier with Western Europe and offers good deals. But any trading by the Allies with Russia is one of the things which makes members of Congress mad. So, at the moment, this is how the score looks: Congress wants to stop all foreign aid soon. Congress doesn't want tariffs lowered to encourage more trade with the Allies at the possible expense of U. S. industries. But Congress frowns on trade between American allies and Russia. That really makes a circle. But the Elsenhower administration does not regard as bad all trade by the Allies with countries behind the Iron Curtain. Naturally, it doesn't want strategic materials sent to Russia to be shot back at American troops later. Stassen's deputy administrator, Kenneth R. Hansen, recently said many countries friendly to the U. S. need such trade with Iron Curtain countries because they receive in exchange for their goods coal, bread, grains, feedstuffs, forest products. The real question, Hansen said, is what is traded with the Iron Curtain countries, when it's traded and who gets the net advantage.
